I guess the only safe place for me then will be at my office building where security is pretty tough to get thru. But out on the streets I'll be on the lookout just in case one of you jump out of bushes or a tree.

Hi,i'd like to know is it possible to turn a suit jacket's flaps pocket to patch pocket? A nd,the jacket has a ticket pocket on it.

Another thing is,the jacket default came with a full lining,I'm thinking to have the lining replace with some vintage pattern silk and make it quarter lining,can this works?

thanks for helping me.

No, patch pockets require additional fabric. Also, there is literally a hole in the jacket for the pocket.

You can change linings, and you may be able to make it quarter lined. The problem with the latter is that the inside of many jackets not made to be quarter lined can be messy--it's why it usually costs a bit more to have a quarter-lined jacket made. Whether this bothers you or not is your call.

Thanks for,your fast answer.
technically say,if i have extra fabric,is it possible a tailor can sewn on the hole and attract the patch pocket to cover the (flaps) hole?
post #22820 of 29363
I mean, sure, it's technically possible. But it will almost certainly look awful. First, no way will you be able to find the same fabric. Second, because the hole is at the top of the pocket, the tailor would have to position the pockets higher than normal.

Quick question from someone who knows little about shoes.  The rubber heel on one of my shoes fell off (see photos) and is lost forever.  Does anyone know how expensive it is / how long it takes to replace both heels?  Also - has this happened to anyone else before?  I have had this pair of Allen Edmonds for about a year now.  Bought them on the clearance section from their website - are those shoes of lesser quality or just lines on their way out?

You can go through AE recrafting process, just replacing the heels would be $50. 

http://www.allenedmonds.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/RecraftingView?catalogId=40000000001&langId=-1&storeId=1

 

From the pictures, it looks like you may have a hole near the toe in one of the shoes, maybe consider replacing the sole as well?

Or, you could go to a local shoe repair shop (cobbler).  They can generally replace both heels for about $10-20.  If it's just the heel, I would do that.  If it's the heel and the sole, I'd do the recrafting from AE.  Just my 2 cents.

Anyone know somewhere to find a slim light blue end-on-end dress shirt?
Preferably something with a semi-spread non-button-down collar.

I'm having trouble finding anything affordable. (<$40)

The same goes for a nice twill pattern.
post #22825 of 29363

Thanks for the quick replies - I think that is a scuff on the top of the sole.  Looks like I'll be headed to the cobbler soon.  I was surprised to see the heel fall off like that - doesn't seem to be a problem on any of my other shoes (AE included).

I'd suggest Cottonwork for that end-on-end -- $45 for MTM isn't bad. Their twills start at $65.

Anyone know what item I have here?  Found it at a thrift store so I would imagine it would be old.  Can't seem to find anything like it from J. Peterman besides current items.  Would like to know about the item if possible.  Do J. Peterman clothes have identifying information on them other than the regular tag?  Hope this is the right thread for this question...if not, my apologies!  Thanks!

This is probably a pair that are quality, but not really my taste:

I love those, I just can't justify a new pair of shoes Monkstraps though (I can always justify a new pair of shoes). I just bought a pair of the AE Medallion toe monk strap Franciscan.

Bought J Crew Carmel colored chinos thinking they were more light brown

 

Tags off and these are washed now (I am tired and lazy these days; I blame the baby)


Anyone like this color?  What do you wear them with.  I am wearing mine today with snuff suede shoes, a blue stripe sport shirt and can't help but feeling a little "off"
